With pieces with titles like ‘Do it again, I didn’t press record’ and ‘Wonderland?! What fucking postcode’s that?’ British artist Barnaby Barford makes a wry statements with his china art that mixes traditional with pop-culture themes. His site says:
Barnaby Barford is an artist who works with ceramics to create unique narrative pieces. Although an accomplished craftsman, Barford primarily selects found objects, taking both mass-manufactured and antique figurines and turning them into sinister, sardonic but invariably humorous sculptures. As the sentimental figurines become characters in his twisted narratives, Barford turns their perceived vulgarity on its head, often into a different and more explicit vulgarity.
